Striker Billy Sharp is hoping to kick-start his career after joining Doncaster Rovers on loan from Sheffield United. The 23-year-old hitman was a bit-part player with the Blades last season and jumped at the chance to join Rovers on a season-long loan. "I've been missing playing and I'm eager to get back," said the former Scunthorpe United hot-shot. "It was frustrating towards the back end of last season when I didn't get any games when I came back from injury. "I worked hard and I thought that I could get back into the team for this season, but it wasn't to be. "I felt that I needed a new challenge and I'm looking forward to getting it here. "I've seen the team play a few times and they are a good footballing side. They get the ball down and pass it and they are full of energy and they create a lot of chance. "Hopefully their style of football will suit my game. That's why I came here."
